Supposedly, yes, but in reality (at least in my experience) no. I've got a
Pentax Optio S which is a brilliant little camera but it doesn't seem to
like SanDisk SD cards - and they're supposedly one of the best makes.
The camera came with a free 128Mb SanDisk card but it didn't work. I had a
Panasonic card from my previous camera and tried that and it worked
beautifully so I returned the SanDisk to the shop. They sent a new one which
also didn't work. Then a third one was tried with the same result, so the
shop sourced a Panasonic one for me and it's brilliant.
